Popular Nigerian music star, David Adeleke fondly known as Davido has been trending on the Nigerian Twitter space for over 24 hours due to a post he made on his verified page.

On Friday, Logos Olori, one of Davido’s newly signed acts, unveiled his first single ‘Jaye Lo’ accompanied by a video.

Davido made a tweet to promote the song on his page just after its release. He wrote, “Allow me to re-introduce @logosolori with his new single ‘Jaye Lo’. Let us Run It Up one time! Let us take over the world! We Litty.”

The tweet was accompanied by a video of the signee sitting on a building that has the semblance of a mosque. Moreso, in the scenes of the video men portrayed as Muslims were seen praying in front of the building.

This has sparked mixed reactions as many people have asked the multiple award-winning singer who has 13.8m followers on Twitter alone to pull down the post.

One of those who have recently expressed displeasure over the post is legendary northern actor, Ali Nuhu. In a post via his verified Instagram account, the actor advised the singer to respect other people’s ‘religion, culture and tradition.”

Posting a picture of Davido with a red X sign, Nuhu tweeted, “I just came across the controversial video posted by @davido, as much we want to be creative in our various fields we should learn to respect other people’s religion, culture and tradition. This is totally unacceptable in Islam. You should pull down that video and apologize for hurting the entire Muslim ummah.”
